The Killer – John Woo
John Woo’s classic ballet of bullets! Mob assassin Jeffrey (Chow Yun-Fat) is no ordinary hired gun: he is the best in his business, and he views his chosen profession as a calling. But when a beautiful nightclub singer is blinded in the crossfire of his most recent hit, Jeffrey chooses one last job in order to pay for his unintended victim's sight-restoring operation. Finding himself double-crossed, Jeffrey reluctantly joins forces with a rogue policeman to make things right. In Mandarin, Cantonese, and Japanese, subtitled. 1989; 142 min.
